I am currently in my third year of teaching as a full time professor. The math classes I have prepared and taught while at Converse College include Finite Math, Elementary Functions, Calculus I and III, Number Theory, Modern Geometry, and Real Analysis. In addition, I co-taught a course for freshmen called Student Success Seminar. My Fall 2016 Real Analysis course was taught in an Inquiry-Based Learning style.
I was a Teaching Assistant for a variety of courses at the University of Iowa, including standard calculus courses, a course for elementary education majors, a course for engineering students, and abstract algebra. In addition, I was a Primary Instructor with full responsibility for College Algebra using the web-based learning system ALEKS (course page here) and for Elementary Functions.
Below you can find my teaching philosophy and some sample materials I've created and used in courses over the years
Some Learning Opportunities:
I attended an Academy of Inquiry-Based Learning workshop in June 2016 at California Polytechnic University in San Luis Obispo, CA. This experience prepared me to teach my Real Analysis course in Fall 2016.
I completed the Graduate College Certificate in College Teaching at the University of Iowa. As part of this program, I completed teaching practicums for Geometry for Elementary Teachers and Educational Psychology.
In the summer of 2013 I was a Teaching Assistant for the Summer Program for Women in Mathematics at George Washington University, a five-week intensive program for mathematically-talented undergraduate women. I attended this program as a participant in summer 2009.
